The Lyrics

A match between the Eagles song and the climactic scenes of Return of the Jedi.
Went to Darth Vader my way
handcuffs on my hands
walker came to meet us
rising up in the air
up ahead in the distance
a shuttle platform, at night
the air grew colder and my face grew grim
it was my father, all right

There he stood in the doorway
Commander had done well
and I was thinking to myself
I'd never noticed- his helmet's a bell.
Then he lit up my saber
and he showed me the way
there were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the hotel of the Emp'ror
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
hanging there in space.
Big as a moon is the hotel of the Emp'ror
What a giant sphere (What a giant sphere)
And the guy is here!

His body evil and twisted
He wants me for his own ends
His confidence is his weaknesses
Mine's my friends.
Now we stand in the throne room
see the fleet, and I fret.
Some stand to remember
Some stand to forget.

So I call up my saber
activates with a whine, and he said
Good, now use that aggression and fear
Like you're father, you're mine
And still those voices are calling from far away
Must be those two red guys out of sight
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the hotel of the Emperor
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
hanging here in space.
We're living it up at the hotel of the Emp'ror
What a nice surprise (What a nice surprise)
For those rebel guys!

Shadows and low ceiling
A brilliant place to hide, (and Dad said)
So, you have a sister here
She'll love the Dark Side.
In the master's chambers
I drove him to defeat
His master couldn't change my side;
I got sizzled like some meat!

Last thing I remember, he was
lifted off the floor
and thrown into the passage back
to the main reactor core.
Relax, said Anakin, I was
programmed but I'm free
You can check out any time you like
Go my son, leave me!
